Default GM Alternator Installation

I removed the old Valeo alternator, and mounted the new GM CS130. Went pretty smooth, for me the hardest part was installing the three 5/16" spacer washers, behind the power steering pump. It was diffucult to hold the alternator, insert the top mounting bolt, and place the shim washers between ther bolt and the alternator. Solved this issue by using super glue to hold the washers in place, while locating the alternator, and inserting the bolt.

With the new alternator installed, I noticed that although the original belt (35") was fairly tight; but because of the length on the smaller diameter alternator, it hit the power steering pump when snug. I decided that a (34") belt, one inch smaller, would leave the tension adjustment in the middle of the adjustment range, for better tension control.

Stopped the install for a day, need to get a shorted belt tomorrow to complete the project.
